This chocolate sauce is oh-so-easy and so much better than store-bought! Use it on ice cream, to top desserts, in coffee; anything you can imagine! It is particularly good topping ice cream on top of a Fudge Brownie!
8 ounces good-quality semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
Combine the cream and corn syrup in a small heavy saucepan and bring to a simmer. Pour the liquid over the chocolate in a bowl and allow it to sit for 3-4 minutes, or until the chocolate has melted. Whisk to combine, then continue until the sauce is shiny and smooth. Allow the sauce to cool slightly, then use or pour into a storage container.
This sauce keeps well in the refrigerator. Let come to room temperature, or warm slightly, before using.
